It seems that i found the perfect crepes recipe!
All recipe has FP~10, so if you will eat 1/2 or 1/3 of all crepes you will have FP=5 or FP=3,3 ! Not bad!
Here is the recipe (it is from here)
1/2 cup arrowroot powder
4 tsp. coconut oil, liquified
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup plus 1 Tbs. water (you may need slightly more) OR use milk of choice (if using full-fat coconut milk, water it down with water because it will be too thick)
Whisk together all ingredients to create a watery batter. Alternatively, place everything in a blender and blend until smooth.
Get your workstation ready. Start heating up your pan over medium-low heat and preheat it for at least 3 minutes so the first crepe cooks evenly. I used an enameled cast iron skillet, which creates slightly larger crepes. You can use a smaller pan, such as an 8-inch skillet, to make smaller crepes. You’ll also need some coconut oil for greasing the pan, plus a paper towel or pastry brush so you can brush the pan with oil.
To make the crepes, first brush a thin layer of oil on the pan. Then, use a measuring cup to pour about 3 Tbs. of batter into the pan. Quickly tilt the pan around so the batter spreads. Working quickly, use the back of a spoon to spread the batter around into any bare spots on the pan. If this is your first time making crepes, don’t worry – there is a slight learning curve. Once you get the hang of it, it’s a piece of cake!
Cook the crepe for about 30 seconds on the first side, until barely golden and dry.The easiest way to flip the crepe is with your fingers. It doesn’t hurt if you do it quickly 🙂 Loosen the edge of the crepe with a fork/spatula and make sure the crepe is not sticking anywhere on the pan. Then use your thumb and forefinger on both hands to hold the edge of the crepe and quickly flip it over. Cook for about 30 seconds on the second side, until done.
Repeat with the remaining batter.Norm RobillardKeymasterFebruary 25, 2015 at 2:21 amPost count: 445
Wow, thanks Pompadur. This recipe sounds great. We have made them with potato flour and they were Ok, not terribly flavorful. How did you like them? I will need to buy arrowroot powder. I have not used it before.
